In our elementary class, we were taught that “Living things is anything that has life”. The biological definition of ‘living thing’ says: Any organism or a living form that possesses or shows the characteristics of life or being alive.

The existence of water all over the world round, points to the fact that water shows the characteristics of “life or being alive”.

The yearly seasonal downpour of rain all over the world, the underground water exploration that makes water available at the earth’s surface for the use of mankind and the provision of surface water supply schemes are unquestionable proofs that water carries the characteristics of a “living thing”, which is ‘life or being alive’.

On the global scene, anytime water is summoned to answer the call of nature, it is always available, and always on duty. Water does not disappoint. Water never fails to deliver. Water is the living thing that gives life to uncountable other living things to exists.

No wonder it is always said that: “Water is life”.

Toilets are anchored on water supply. The engine room that keep toilet running, no doubt, is water. Toilet and water work together. The good thing is that water can exist alone, while toilet majorly is dependent on water to survive and to remain productively functioning.

Without mincing words, toilet is very vital to the existence of living. Be it in the developed urban cities or in the rural settings, toileting is part of our daily life activities.
